Map of habitats of Castell de Montesquiu Park (scale 1:10,000)
The habitats map of Castell de Montesquiu natural area

This mapping includes all the Park of Foix and some nearby areas, mainly located in Osona region. The total mapped area is 1,286 hectares.

The mapping, carried out by a researchers team of Vic University, was done using the ortophotomaps (1:5,000 and 1:2,500) of the Cartographic Institute of Catalonia (infrared and colour) and the fieldwork was conducted in Spring and Summer of 2014. The legend consists of CORINE units cited and explained in the Catalan Habitats Manual. The cartographic information is structured in two layers, one of polygons and another of points. Each of which, contains the information of the CORINE Habitats and the European Union Habitats of Interest (HCI). The minimum area has been set to 0,2 hectares for polygons. Habitats which occupy less surface, are represented as points. In the whole area we mapped, we could create a total of 394 polygons and 95 points. In total, 70 habitats were detected; 20 of those are European Union Habitats of Interest (HCI), and 4 of those is priority.

The Natural Parks Network of the Diputació de Barcelona has promoted and financed the habitats mapping of this natural area.
